New wiring looms

PostPost by: William2 » Sun May 11, 2014 12:25 pm

I am about to rewire my S4 and invest in wiring looms for the engine bay and dashboard. Has anyone had experiences of these from either Paul Matty or Susan Miller? Do they generally fit well with no alterations needed?

Purchased my Dash, Engine bay and Rear looms from Paul Matty, for my 1968 +2. All fitted well.
So you have choice from several suppliers. :)

I Bought my S4 Engine bay loom from PM. The old one was for a Dynamo and the new one for a Lucas Alternator

Best price, fits well.

+ it has a feed and ground for the coil - useful if you have electronic ignition.

- it didn't have the short feed ( yellow /grey) wire for the air horn

Do all new main harnesses come with the wiring for the side indicator wing repeaters as I notice they aren't shown on the S4 wiring diagrams??

the side repeater wiring is a bit of flat black flex that is soldered to the lamp.

You will need the 6 way bullet connector from your old loom for the ground. If you don't have one it is a 4 way with a 2 way soldered on to it.

Went to Paul Matty in the end as their cables were the best price.
